“In contrast to how this project might play out today, it seemed then that people enjoyed being recognised by the camera and readily participated in the playfulness of the moment. It was warm outside, the car windows were open. It was the window that framed and instilled these portraits with the language of the automobile environment.” — Mike Mandel on his book, developed from acknowledging how significant the car was in his own life. Portraying people in that particular portion of space inside the vehicle appears formally captivating and conveys a sense of their everyday life. These black and white pictures were taken in Los Angeles during the 1970s. Also a reflection on the importance cars play in people’s life, often being them a sort of extension of our bodies.
